Can Anybody Doubt That Obama Is A Socialist? (Welcome To Animal Farm)


That's right, liberals, all those right wing nut jobs who claimed that Obama was a socialist were just a bunch of paranoid wackoes. It could could never happen in America.

Wait . . . what's this??????


"The prepackaged GM bankruptcy deal — crafted by the administration, the company, the United Auto Workers union and a group of bondholders — would give the U.S. government a 60 percent controlling stake in what was once the world's largest automaker. An additional 12.5 percent would be under Canadian government ownership."
The day you thought would never happen has arrived. The U.S. government now controls what was once one of the largest publicly owned companies in the world. First Obama authorized giving GM millions of dollars in bailout loans just before driving them into bankruptcy (and only a genius like Obama would give millions to a company before leading them to bankruptcy). Then Obama used his "Automotive Task Force," which is conveniently devoid of anybody who actually worked in the automotive industry, to take control.

Of course, blinded Obama supportors will follow their leader, believing every teleprompted word explaining that this is a short-term but necessary endeavor. Why is it that I myself paraphrasing George Orwell's Animal Farm:

"It had become usual to give Obama the credit for every successful achievement and every stroke of good fortune. You would often hear one hen remark to another, 'Under the guidance of our Leader, Comrade Obama, I have laid five eggs in six days'; or two cows, enjoying a drink at the pool, would exclaim, 'Thanks to the leadership of Comrade Obama, how excellent this water tastes!'"
As Barack Obama continues to feed them words they long to hear.

"What I have no interest in doing is running GM," Obama said. His only goal, he said, was to get GM back on its feet and then "to get out quickly."
But as White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said, "[Obama] has a strong obligation to ensure that there is a management structure in place that is making smart business decisions." So now the President of the United States (who has never managed a company) with the help of the Federal Government (who mismanage everything they touch) are going to decide what is a "smart business decision." Sounds to me like "running GM" is exactly what Obama and his minions intend to do. And they believe that they have the right to do so.

Or as my Orwell would write:

"No one believes more firmly than Comrade Obama that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?"
Luckily if Obama should make a poor decision he will fall back on his tried and true defense: George Bush, the Republicans and those greedy CEOs are to blame! Or to go all Orwellian again:
"If a window was broken or a drain was blocked up, someone was certain to say that Bush had come in the night and done it, and when the key of the store-shed was lost, the whole farm was convinced that Bush had thrown it down the well. Curiously enough, they went on believing this even after the mislaid key was found under a sack of meal."
You see, we are being being told that this is not socialism; that the far-left wing of the Democratic Party that is now in power is simply doing what must be done because of the failures of their predoccessors (I guess ignoring the fact that most of them have been in Washington for a very long time). We are being told that market solutions are not the answer and that they are the only ones who can save us from ourselves. Because:

    The liberals are strangely quiet about recent topics like these.

    It makes me sad to see the direction that this country is going in.

    It sickens me to see how much the media worships Obama. And it angers me when I think about how stupidly Americans voted in this extremist with ZERO experience into office.

    So I often think to myself, "America deserves what it gets!" I really don't blame Obama, because it's been pretty clear from the beginning what he is. I blame Americans for voting for him. I can't believe that such a stupid chant like "CHANGE" would dupe so many people. Are people really that stupid? I guess so.

    Maybe these socialists are right about people not knowing how making the right decisions for themselves. The masses are stupid. But doesn't mean that government can do better. I still believe that free market capitalism is the best economic system in this far-from-perfect world.

    No, he will put one of his minions in to do the job for him.

    Part of the problem is how free-market economics has been justified over the past 70 years. It's been argued on consequential rather than deontological grounds. I personally think that free markets are good because they are free - not because they are efficient... Once you start arguing from consequences - then the rabble gets wound up when the markets appear to be screwy. If you posit freedom as the superordinate good - then you don't have these problems when bubbles pop - and then we wouldn't have everyone running to socialism.
